With her new movie "Thanks for Sharing" set to hit theaters on November 2nd, Gwyneth Paltrow kicked off promotions a bit early by covering the October 2012 issue of InStyle magazine.
The 39-year-old actress - who was just named Best Dressed Woman in the World - looked darling in a Diane von Furstenberg jumpsuit with Fred Leighton earrings and Vhernier bracelets for the Giampaolo Sgura shot front page while dishing about everything from her diet to not letting her two children watch television in their native English language.
On the differences between her and her husband, Chris Martin:
"Probably our artistic temperaments. Artists are sensitive; there are ups and downs mood-wise. Musicians need a certain gravitas and focus in order to write. The temperanemt that goes with someone who is creative can be challenging. I focus more on understanding than being understood."
On only allowing her children to watch television in a foreign language:
"I only let them watch TV in French or Spanish. When I'm in France, I go to [Boulevard] Beaumarchais and buy all their cartoons."
On her favorite food to indulge in:
"My indulging is a fresh baguette with cheese and a glass of red wine or french fries and fried zucchini. Or a turkey burger."
